He was born in Lausanne, Vaud canton. His grandfather Auguste Piccard and father, Jacques Piccard, were noted balloonists and inventors.

Growing up in a ballooning and undersea-exploring family, Bertrand Piccard was always fascinated with flight. As a child, he was taken to the launch of several space flights from Cape Canaveral. He became a hang-glider and developed an interest in ultra-light motorized flight, as well as the gas balloons his grandfather had set records in.

He is a lecturer and supervisor at the Swiss Society for Medical Hypnosis.

On March 1, 1999 Piccard and Brian Jones set off in the balloon Breitling Orbiter 3 from Chteau d'Oex in Switzerland on the non-stop balloon circumnavigation. They landed in Egypt after a 45,755 kilometre flight lasting 19 days, 21 hours and 47 minutes. In recognition of this accomplishment, he received awards including the Harmon Trophy, the FAI Gold Air Medal and the Charles Green Salver.

In 2004, he co-announced a project, in cooperation with the Ecole Polytechnique Fdrale de Lausanne (EPFL), for a solar-powered, long-range, one-seated glider named Solar Impulse. The project is dubbed "a great human adventure". Piccard plans to begin construction in 2007, and conduct short test flights in 2008. He has financial and technical backing from several European firms, so it looks as if the Solar Impulse will be a European craft, not a Swiss one, despite scientific support from the EPFL. The plan is to circumnavigate the globe with several pilots in relay, flying above cloud cover during the day and at lower altitude at night sometime in 2009.

He is known for his flamboyant declarations, using expressions such as:
"the Invisible Hand": "I went in search of new ideas blowing in the wind, to try and live better on Earth in my roles as doctor and human being."
"Consciousness is perceiving one's soul."
"Welcome to those who believe in the power of dreams and who would like to join me in my exploration of life."
